The Group integrates acts of corporate responsibility into its business strategy, focusing on transparent and responsible management
For Grupo Catalana Occidente, corporate responsibility means voluntary commitment to the integration of responsible management in economic, social and environmental aspects, promoting ethical behaviour with its stakeholders, rigorously applying the principles of good governance and contributing to the well-being of society through the creation of sustainable social value.
The social value is the result of focusing its activity not only on obtaining good financial results but also on promoting the well-being of the stakeholders that form part of the group and to whom the Group's companies respond. This value becomes sustainable when it is integrated not only in the short, but also in the medium and long term.
Grupo Catalana Occidente's companies contribute to the social and economic improvement of the areas where it operates through the development of its business. The very nature of the insurance business involves the concept of social responsibility because it consists of accompanying its customers at all times of their professional and personal lives, anticipating risks in order to protect them.
Social and environmental structure
The material issues in Grupo Catalana Occidente are economic, environmental and social issues that are considered significant for sustainability. These matters influence the decision-making of stakeholders and constitute the basis on which the Corporate Responsibility Plan has been defined, its initiatives being grouped around three fundamental core ideas: trust, excellent service and positive impact.
